The last 12 months have been phenomenally good for the business. With a number of exciting clients coming on board and further growth planned for the next 12 months, Clearly PR is looking to expand its team with the addition of a PR Account Executive.

This role will suit someone who is looking for the opportunity to assume responsibility and ownership of the clients they represent, and is eager to continue their PR career with a fast-growing PR agency. At Clearly PR, you will play a key role in servicing, managing and growing the agency’s existing clients, while supporting the onboarding of new ones.

The successful candidate must have PR experience gained either in-house or agency-side.

You will be:

  • Relationship building with clients, colleagues and the media
  • Proactive and reactive media engagement
  • Researching target media and compiling forward features lists
  • Researching, writing and distributing press releases
  • Copywriting for the web and promotional materials
  • Social media management: Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook
  • Ghost writing industry-focused articles
  • Selling-in stories to the media
  • Helping to develop and win new business
  • Representing the business at new business presentations and industry events
  • Media monitoring, analysis, and reporting
  • Client reports and attending meetings

What you will need:

Our clients are passionate about their business as much as we are passionate about ours, and that’s why we only want people who equally passionate about the work they do. We look for self-motivated, self-aware, and self-driven people with initiative to join us – if you work best by being told what to do all the time, then this is not the right environment for you.

PR is a creative business, so it is important to us that you can bring different ideas to the table. We have achieved what we have so far because we avoid the ‘safe’ and predictable approach to PR than most agencies take, we look at things in a way that makes our clients stand above the noise.

That’s why we look for creative thinkers – much like the CV you may be sending in response to this job advert, what will make your application stand out from the others we receive?

Please include examples in your covering note of articles that you may have had published either online or offline.
